A Poem

This is a poem I wrote based on something Flannery O’Connor said about faith not being an electric blanket. It reminded me of a passage in Luke. Hence the title.

Luke 9:58

The man who came to Jesus

Was told to count the cost.

Faith’s no electric blanket.

It will lead you to a cross.

It’s not a thing to run toward

To flee from pain or life.

The way of faith is suffering:

A life of sacrifice.
